Making Sense of 2 IoT Protocols: MQTT and CoAP

Exadel’s VP of Software Development, Jonathan Fries, has shared an­other thought­ful piece on the Internet of Things, this time fo­cus­ing on two tech­nolo­gies that stand out for IoT de­vice com­mu­ni­ca­tions: MQTT (Message Queue Telemetry Transport) and CoAP (Constrained Application Protocol). There’s no al­ways right an­swer for which to use, but Jonathan gives some guid­ance on how to de­cide based on the situation—after ex­plain­ing each of the pro­to­cols. He also makes some pre­dic­tions about the fu­ture for these pro­to­cols.

Read the whole ar­ti­cle: Why are IoT de­vel­op­ers con­fused by MQTT and CoAP?

Learn about Enterprise Mobility from Exadel & Verivo

The en­ter­prise is go­ing mo­bile more and more. The dif­fer­ence is in how quick and trou­ble-free the tran­si­tion can be fore your par­tic­u­lar busi­ness.

Verivo and Exadel have been part­ner­ing to­gether to make seam­less en­ter­prise mo­bil­ity hap­pen for a va­ri­ety of en­ter­prise cus­tomers. Now we feel it’s time to share our ex­pe­ri­ences. We wanted to present a we­bi­nar to­gether to help oth­ers see the ben­e­fits of en­ter­prise mo­bil­ity along with some lessons learned along the way, but we also wanted to make the in­for­ma­tion more di­gestible. So, we de­cided to break up the ma­te­r­ial into three brief 30-minute we­bi­nars.  The se­ries starts off April 1, then con­tin­ues on April 7 and April 14, all at 11am Pacific time. Here’s our line-up so far:

Exadel People Publish New RichFaces Book

Max Katz

Ilya Shaikovsky

Two Exadel em­ploy­ees, Max Katz and Ilya Shaikovsky, got to see their book, Practical RichFaces (2nd Edition), pub­lished by Apress last week. This book is per­fect for any­one with a ba­sic knowl­edge of JavaServer Faces who wants to learn how to build AJAX-based ap­pli­ca­tions with RichFaces. The book cov­ers RichFaces 4, which is based on JSF 2. It doesn’t over­whelm you by doc­u­ment­ing every last lit­tle de­tail in RichFaces 4, but still cov­ers every­thing, so that de­vel­op­ers at all lev­els of ex­pe­ri­ence in RichFaces will get a lot out of this book.

Online Showcase for RichFaces 4 Available

For a long time we’ve hosted an on­line demo show­cas­ing RichFaces 3 fea­tures. Now that RichFaces 4 is out, we’ve put the show­case for RichFaces 4 fea­tures on­line. You can reach both of these from our demos page. Also on that page are some other demo items you might be in­ter­ested in: Read more »

See Slides of Our Mobile Commerce iPhone Client

We’ve re­cently posted a slide show for demon­strat­ing the fea­tures of the iPhone client that works with our Exadel M-Commerce Solution, our great pack­age based on Exadel Flamingo for “mo­bi­liz­ing” ex­ist­ing e-com­merce func­tion­al­ity. It should help you get a much bet­ter idea of the iPhone client’s ca­pa­bil­i­ties with­out hav­ing to down­load an ac­tual app. Just go here and log in:


(If you haven’t reg­is­tered yet, it’s easy — only 4 items to fill in.)

Sign Up for Online Demos

In pro­mot­ing our so­lu­tions and ser­vices, we of­fer po­ten­tial cus­tomers the op­por­tu­nity to sign up on our Web site for per­sonal on­line demos pro­vided by our staff.

We cur­rently of­fer demos for (JBoss) RichFaces and the Exadel M-Commerce Solution. We in­vented and con­tinue to de­velop RichFaces, so we are ex­perts in RichFaces. The Exadel M-Commerce Solution is a new prod­uct that we’re ex­cited about. It lever­ages Exadel Flamingo and our ex­per­tise in mo­bile com­merce from ser­vice en­gage­ments.

The ac­tual process for set­ting up a demo like this is pretty straight­for­ward. Read more »

EclipseCon 2010

I was ex­cited to at­tend this year’s EclipseCon on Wednesday (March 24) in Santa Clara, California.

TheServerSide Java Conference Coming Up Next Week

TheServerSide is host­ing an­other Java Symposium this year. It will run from March 17 to March 19 in Las Vegas. Of course, you knew this al­ready from reg­u­larly check­ing our cal­en­dar. (Our cal­en­dar would also show that Exadel’s Max Katz will be do­ing 2 ses­sions.)

As the TheServerSide points out, it’s dur­ing dif­fi­cult tur­bu­lent times that these sorts of in­for­ma­tion-shar­ing events be­come so im­por­tant for developers–at the same time re­sources to at­tend events is much tighter. We can help a lit­tle by of­fer­ing our dis­count code. To re­deem this spe­cial of­fer, reg­is­ter on­line with the code FRIENDOFSPKR and you’ll au­to­mat­i­cally save $200. (Yes, you can still reg­is­ter.) Read more »

Webinar Recordings

In the process of adding a link to our lat­est we­bi­nar on our we­bi­nars page, I no­ticed we’ve com­piled quite a list of we­bi­nars over the last year. At Exadel, we usu­ally treat a we­bi­nar as a part­ner­ing op­por­tu­nity, so each of these we­bi­nars is as­so­ci­ated with a par­tic­u­lar part­ner. Going back a year that list in­cludes: Read more »
